The plumber johns creek has new tools now for a new technology called pex plumbing. Pex pipe is flexible like a garden hose but has the strength of copper tubing to handle high water pressure. Many older homes had steel pipes installed in the 1940’s and 1950’s. Those pipes need to be replaced and pex is the perfect economical way to re-pipe those old homes. Because of the small and flexible nature of pex pipe the lines can be pulled through the walls along the path of old plumbing and if that doesn’t work can be easily concealed o the outside of walls. The labor for pex pipe installation is about 10% of the cost copper installation and the pex pipe is cheaper than copper.
Another relatively new Johns Creek plumbing service is cured in place pipe repair or CIPP for short. CIPP is used for chemical , sewer, water, and gas applications. The most common use in residential plumbing is sewer repair. A tube is pulled through the pipe that has a double membrane wall. This is called a resin tube liner. Then a chemical is pumped into the membrane forcing it to line the pipe. After lining the pipe the new material must be cured with UV light, steam, or sometimes hot water. When the process is over a new plastic pipe has formed inside the old pipe. It is a pipe within a pipe.
Plumbers with these skills have another new helper added to their toolbox. Closed Circuit Cable Television allows the plumber to inspect any and all lines running to and from the house.
Plumbers may be called to a residence or they may be called to large commercial facilities. Plumbing problems are different for each type of job he is called to. A restaurant might have grease clogging one of the expulsion pipes. Commercial disposals are another major problem. Sewer lines from restaurants seem more prone to clog and back up.
After becoming licensed, the plumber starts his true schooling, that of dealing with the public.
